Sheba was a queen in her own right, possibly of the Sabaeans, although what exact area the she ruled over is debated. It may have covered Ethiopia and Yemen. In Muslim stories about the Queen of Sheba, her mother is a jinn.
Stories about the Queen of Sheba include:
the murder of her first husband so that she could rule alone,
her masculine hairy legs,
her "unnatural" refusal to remarry to bear children, and
- Sheba's later subjugation to a husband from Yemen.
